The center has averaged 10 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2 assists this year.
He’s been a pivotal part of the squad and a huge part of their defensive power.
On Monday night, he limited one of the Miami Heat’s biggest stars.
Robert Williams got Bam looking normal again I see. Don’t mind me tho and Carry on…

As Kendrick Perkins pointed out on Twitter, Williams had “Bam [Adebayo] looking normal again”, signifying just how powerful Williams is and how he can stop some of the most impressive, intimidating guys in the league.
Will Williams be able to do that as the series moves back to Miami?
The Will Of Williams
Williams has had an impact throughout this postseason, putting up 8.3 points and 5.8 rebounds a game.
Those are the highest numbers he’s ever achieved in the playoffs.
All season long, people have commented on just how much Williams brings to Boston’s defense.
He truly has become a vital part of the lineup.
Heading into this series, the team knew they had their work cut out for them with the Heat.
The Heat have one of the strongest offenses in the league and it’s part of the reason why they are the number one seed in the East.
Yet, the Celtics have been able to limit that offense repeatedly.
The Eastern Conference Finals are currently tied at 2-2.
Both of Boston’s wins have been blowouts by at least 20 points.
That’s partly because Williams has been on the court a lot, shutting the Heat down whenever he can.
The question is if he can keep it up now that the series is going back to Miami.
And if he can, will he be able to bring that same sort of power to the NBA Finals?
